    It simply points out, as I'd be confident you could appreciate either way, the government is doing something tangible and that is likely to be an effective incentive to get those governments and societies to be receptive to the repatriation of their own youth.

    I'd much rather the governments there themselves paid for the repatriation of their own children, and I believe Washington too would much prefer to see it happen that way. Maybe - and it's only a maybe - if the governments there had to pay for the repatriation the governments and the societies there might think twice to instead spend a couple of bucks of their own to straighten up their own southern borders to stop the flow and transit of these kids.

    But then I wouldn't expect much from the governments or societies down there that would be responsible, moral, just.
    Or maybe see what they could do to help the people they govern - much like FDR did in the Great Depression here. Surely there is infrastructure that could be built or repaired or something with the money they're going to get. The elite will doubtless keep the bulk of it, but surely it would benefit everyone if the rest of the people are not forgotten. The elite classes are not the ones trying to illegally enter our Country!

    How exactly would he stop them? Free press, 24 hour news cycle....I'm surprised they don't film him taking a ****.

    I'm guessing you're referring to Dubya and Katrina, an entirely different catastrophe. You don't even send in first responders in the middle of a hurricane, and the border situation is not a hurricane. Further, the President was already in Texas for fundraisers, and flying 300+ miles to survey the border or even just demonstrate the gravity of the situation by his presence was too much to ask.

    I dont think Clinton or Bush bailed on their presidential duties when there was an ongoing crisis to go to attend fundraisers. I cant Imagine Kennedy saying..."dang...this is hard, what with trying to figure out these missiles to Cuba...but...ooops...look at the time...gotta scoot. Theres a seat at a fundraiser with my name on it!"

    And the typical "but...but...but...THEY did it...thats the lamest of lame excuses."

    Nope, follow the conversation. It was about Presidents bowing.

There's a problem on our border, an old problem with a new twist to be sure. But if you're just learning about it this year, that's a problem, too! No president, congress or party has ever secured the border between Mexico and the United States. It is what it is.
    Oh good Lord. A handshake on the tarmac is all of a few seconds. You can't really be making that argument, can you?

    I don't love George Bush, I just didn't spend 8 years burning him in effigy life the left did. Now the same people are trying to defend Obama by saying he is doing what Bush did.

    President G.W. Bush seem not to have any problem visiting wounded soldiers at hospitals without the news media knowing about it.

    President Reagan was able to move about Washington DC and Santa Barbra with only one car and a couple of Secret Service agents with no press or cameras.

    The same was true with Nixon. Ever wonder why there is no photo of Nixon speaking with anti war demonstrators late at night at the Lincoln Memorial ?

    Well Rocket, you seem to be uninformed. Let me bring you up to speed.

    Barack Obama suffers from narcissistic personality disorder.
    In layman terms, Obama is a narcissistic. He thinks he's better than you.
    Obama needs the MSM and all of the cameras. He needs 15 car motorcades just to travel one block from the White House to McDonalds. He can't even shoot pool with out a camera. His narcissism is so sever that when he traveled to Afghanistan for a photo op, all of the troops were given cameras so they could take pictures of Obama.

    >" Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism..."<
